CARVING THE NECK, CONTINUED

Shaping the neck where it meets the headstock:



The shapely heel:



Sanding the neck:



Drilling the holes in the fingerboard for the side dots:



Installing the brass side dots:



Filing the side dots:



Close-up of one of the brass side dots (the maple fingerboard binding has not been sanded yet):



Gluing the neck to the body, and finally starting to see a guitar taking shape!





Finally, the fingerboard after the first sanding:



Wow, that was a lot of photos to upload. I hope you enjoyed seeing a snippet of all the small steps it takes to carve an acoustic guitar neck.
